Experience the Central Section of the Great Barrier Reef for yourself on board our 14-metre custom built vessel, MV Adrenalin, with fully shaded areas, sun deck, stabilisers, toilet, shower, along with easy access in & out of the water. The Central Section of the Great Barrier Reef is a little further off the Queensland Coast than other sections and as a result has some of the best sites of the whole Great Barrier Reef.
Our preferred reef for day trips is Lodestone Reef, chosen for its diversity of sites, great coral cover, fish life and reasonable protection. We have a number of sites around this reef and will choose the best site on the day. You could visit Lodestone Reef dozens of times and be surprised every time. Some sites feature large coral bommies with white coral sand sea floors, others have large gutters running through the coral occupied by hundreds of reef fish, and colorful coral walls occupied by innumerable marine animals in crystal clear water.
Depths at Lodestone range from 1 metre to 20 metres making it ideal for snorkellers, beginner and experienced divers. Big schools of trevally and bait fish are common as well as a myriad of colourful reef fish including Parrot fish, Maori wrasse, Clown fish, Angel fish, Turtles, Stingrays, White tip and Black tip reef sharks often sighted.
A visit to Lodestone Reef with Adrenalin Snorkel & Dive is a perfect way to enjoy snorkeling, introductory scuba dives or certified dives. Both snorkelers and divers will be exhilarated witnessing the spectacular marine life that Lodestone has to offer whilst being immersed in tropical crystal clear water.
You can board the vessel from either Townsville or Magnetic Island, it’s your choice!
